I counted 16 on my map. There appears to be another planned east of St. Vincent de Paul.

This is probably the smallest suspension bridge in Canada.
And it is the only suspension bridge in Toronto.

The Sewells Road bridge about 10 minutes from Miketoronto's house.
Located in North East Scarborough(Toronto) in the Rouge Park. It is only one lane.

Photo thanks to gadicion

This is the Souris Suspension Bridge, Souris, Manitoba. Once claimed to be the longest in Canada but it appears Eagle Canyon/Thunder Bay and possibly others are longer. It's 554' or 584' in length and very bouncy.
Originally built over 100 years ago by the land owner so he could access his land on the other side of the Souris river.

It's long but not nearly as high as Capilano or Eagle Canyon.

ok, but can someone explain to me the point in a tunnel bridge? is it to keep snow off the tracks or something.

^ Likely; the third-rail system is prone to shorting in snowy conditions.

It would be pretty awesome if they enclosed it in glass instead.

Wow, the Park Bridge is easily my favourite new Canadian bridge.

Here's another of the wonderful Burrard St. Bridge from a different angle and a different time of year.



Picture by me.

Purely Aesthetics? Possibly wind sheer? As you can see in the photo, there used to be some fairly large holes in the roof
